Green tea, has been consumed and hailed for its health benefits for centuries globally, but has only recently gained popularity in the United States.
Our Gyokuro Kokyu is a blend of two of Kyoto Prefecture's finest teas, Ujitawara Gyokuro and Wazuka Kabuse Cha, or “shaded tea”. Blending these teas is to produces a uniform high quality gyokuro that can be made available to worldwide tea enthusiasts at a stable and affordable price. Kabuse Cha is grown in the same manner as Gyokuro tea, yet shaded for the last week before harvest, which increases the chlorophyll content of the leaves. This produces a unique flavor somewhere in the middle of Sencha and Gyokuro. Our Gyokuru Kokyu is a well-rounded tea with a slight grassy flavor in the first notes, rich umami sweetness, and lingering finish.
